Nutty Baked Apple Crumble
1 cup raw walnuts
1 cup raw pecans
¼ cup oat flour
1 tablespoon agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup apple juice or cider
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, divided
4 Pazazz apples, peeled and thinly sliced
Juice of 1 lemon
¼ cup cane sugar
Preheat oven to 350.
Pulse walnuts and pecans in food processor until ground. Add oat flour, agave nectar, vanilla extract, apple juice, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and ½ teaspoon nutmeg and pulse until combined.
Press nut crust into oiled baking dish, setting aside ¼ cup mixture for nutty crumble topping. Par-bake crust in oven for 5 minutes.
In large bowl, toss sliced Pazazz apples with lemon juice. In a separate small bowl, mix cane sugar, remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon and ½ teaspoon nutmeg together. Sprinkle sugar mixture over apples and toss.
Fill par-baked crust with apples and top with remaining nut crumble and bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until browned.
